Set off Victoria Street and close to the States of Alderney building/s this historic church is a place of tranquility. Inside the church is cool and refreshing , peaceful and quiet with beautifully proportioned cathedral ceilings.

I do appreciate it when I visit a village and find the church open. It restores my faith in human nature. This is a massive church for such a small island and deserves the accolade of Cathedral of the Channel Island.

A most impressive church, with lots of stained glass window. Ever wanted to ring the church bells, it is possible to do at St. Anne's church.

Lovers of Victorian church architecture are in for a treat when they visit St Anne's. As well as being a magnificent building, it's a real place of prayer, and full of fascinating things, such as the 17th century Bible, and an astonishing 20th century sculpture of Christ's face.

A very tranquil place on this island of calm. The history surrounds you as you wander between those laid to rest. Take your time and also visit the museum which tells, in some detail, of the experiences of those children evacuated in 1940 as interviewed by present day school children.

A very large church for an island of this size. Would have been nice to have hand held information boards as in some other churches we have visited.

A good place to to draw aside from busy lives. Contemplative and yet full of history linked to Alderney. Clearly the centre of a vibrant community. Worth a visit.
